? joey jackson and brian claypool, a defense attorney. there was an error for 10 years, joey, where instead of reporting -- they have to give the data to u.s. news and world report about how great they are. one of the data they have to submit is how many freshmen were in the top 10% of their high school classes coming into your university. they were reporting 78% when it was 5 it%. >> that's a little bit of a problem. i feel bad for the students who were there who relied upon either an intentional misrepresentation or negligent misrepresentation. the university should know better and certainly the students and the parents deserve better. furthermore, not only do we get to the issue of negligence or intentional rit representation but -- misrepresentation. these students were induced into attending this university based upon what they relied to be a ranking they felt was substantive and accurate. megyn: what about those students who want to move on to professional school and are planning to go to law school or med school who thought they would be emerging from a university ranked 51st
